Gnōthi seauton is Greek for “Know Thyself”
What is the essence of our existence?
Intuition reveals “myself”
Can this knowledge overcome resistance?
Understand our strength’s consistence
Hear that Divine madness beyond the thought
Temper desire with a loving distance
We become different when compassion is sought
We become our art when our love is caught
Mystery becomes a gift, carefully wrought
